Letterbox Love is a UK based feature where book bloggers showcase the books that they received that week, be they e-books, paperbacks, hardbacks or any other format. It is hosted by Lynsey from Narratively Speaking.
This is my book haul for the past three weeks because I was busy moving to WordPress and posting my UKYA fortnight posts. I counted how many books I got and it totals 21…Maybe I need to go on a book-buying ban soon. I think so!
Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire- So I went to The Works on Friday and picked this up. There was this huge controversy surrounding it a few months ago (it probably wasn’t that long ago) and so it caught my attention then and it does sound really good.
Hallowed by Cynthia Hand- I didn’t enjoy Unearthly that much but I couldn’t resist this when I saw it.
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder- This is extremely naughty of me to buy because I already have it on my Kindle to read but it sounds so good and I’m more likely to read it if it’s sat in front of me.
Poison Heart by S.B. Hayes- I don’t think I’ve heard of this one before but it’s got me intrigued and so I’m crossing my fingers I’ll enjoy it.
Dead Jealous by Sharon Jones- I’ve wanted to read this one for a while now because I’m trying to read more thriller/crime-y novels. It’s UKYA, too!
Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian- I saw Amber’s tweets about the sequel to this one so I thought I should try out the first one. The cover is so gorgeous and I just want to stroke it…
The D.U.F.F by Kody Keplinger- I read Cass’ review and instantly started craving this book. I scoured the book shop for it but couldn’t find it and then just as I was about to go this book caught my eye and it was this one! I’m really eating up contemporary novels at the moment.
Charity Shop Finds:
Northern Lights by Philip Pullman- I’m probably one of the only people who hasn’t read this yet, which is terrible of me. I’m such an awful reader!
Life at the Shallow End by Helen Bailey- I loved Running in Heels by this author and was super pleased when I managed to pick this one out.
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett- I read this for school last year but didn’t have my own copy and so was really pleased when I found this. It’s one of my favourite classics.
Broken Soup by Jenny Valentine- This one sounds really good and I love the cover.
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness- I have had enough of not knowing what anyone is on about when people talk about this book. Sadly, some of it has been spoiled for me, but I’ll try and forget about that.
My Mad Fat Diary by Rae Earl- This one sounds so good and right up my street. And it has battenburg cake on the back which I may just have to eat…
Lock & Key by Sarah Dessen- This will be my third Sarah Dessen book and I’m really looking forward to starting it.
Before I Die by Jenny Downham- I’ve already read this but I had to buy my own copy when I saw it because it’s such a beautiful book.
The Soterion Mission by Stewart Ross- My review is coming of this next week. Thank you, Curious Fox!
Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick- Review was posted here. Thank you, Headline!
(Can you tell that I’m getting lazy..?)
The Key to the Golden Firebird by Maureen Johnson- My first (kind of. I read 13 Little Blue Envelopes years ago but can’t remember it properly now) MJ book! So excited to start this one. Thanks, Hot Key!
The Elites by Natasha Ngan- FGFIEWFGIYWFGIYFV. AAAHHHHH! Words cannot describe how excited I was when this popped through my letterbox. My parents were sick of me telling them about it! Thanks Hot Key for being so fab!
The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo- Review coming soon! I really enjoyed this one. Thanks, Hot Key!
The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon- Woo! I was so pleased to receive this and it has such a pretty dust jacket and cover. *gazes longingly* Review coming soon. Thank you, Bloomsbury!
What did you get this week?
